Facelift headlight lens?

Is it possible to buy a pair of new headlight lenses for an E46 facelift coupe?

I tried 2 local BMW dealers and they were unable to find any part numbers for the facelift lenses.

(I'm looking for the AL brand of headlight lenses by the way.)


Thanks

you cannot get new lenses for the 04-06 Coupe Convertible.
You can just refinish yours if possible unless they are cracked.

There are no replacements for facelift coupes.

I already checked realoem before I visited my local dealer, and there was no part number available for a facelift lens.

I think they only sell the lens for pre-facelift and M3 cars.

Yeah, the lens is actually badly cracked, so needs to be replaced. It's a pity that the facelift lens seems to be discontinued. My only option is to purchase a new headlight, but the BMW dealer quoted 400 for a new projector headlight!

Is there any cheaper option? Maybe I should just buy a second-hand headlight?
